Women Against Heart Disease Lunch

It’s a common misconception that heart disease is a man’s disease. It’s Australia’s second biggest killer of women and we need your help to change that.

At our Women Against Heart Disease lunch, you’ll hear from incredible women who have joined forces to stop heart disease from being misdiagnosed, overlooked, and even ignored in women across Australia.

Learn from our world-leading researchers who will share the latest research in women's heart disease, meet with like-minded women, and help us raise funds for life-saving medical research.

This annual event is held in honour of the late Monica O’Loughlin, Finance Manager, Victor Chang
Cardiac Research Institute, who tragically died of a heart attack.
